When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for people to dissolve the political controls created by a system which gives corporations the same rights as individuals, when these corporations use their abundant resources to promote their individual voice over the collective cries of the majority--then it is imperative to sever the ties which bind our current government to corporate influence.

Maine's forests are vast and beautiful, supporting human and non-human communities alike. Yet, their story is one of corporate colonization and ongoing oppression. This reader is meant to shed light on some of the forces at work in the Maine Woods and the effects they have on the state, and to inspire a desire to fight and protect our forests and their inhabitants from the powers that be.

This pamphlet is about our roles as politicized actors. This is about punks and politics. It is an explanation and a criticism of two different forms of activism, lifestyle activism and group activism. It is an attempt to analyze the ways we try to change our world-our struggles, our victories, and our failures. It is also a recognition of the difficulty and the contradictions involved in actively resisting our system. Finally, it is a call to network and communicate-for those kids involved in...

All of us encounter people whose behavior we find difficult, and many of us are difficult ourselves, at least at times! This poses a particular challenge for social activists trying to promote a more egalitarian, just, and decent society. The problem of "difficult people" needs to be recognized and addressed in a way compatible with a vision of a desirable future.

...Today it can be said aloud that dungeons are dungeons, cages are cages, and that nothing can be done about those who are locked in, since the main thing is not to do them good but that offenders be banished inside the national borders. They are purely and simply suppressed. This is wjhy short prison sentences appear inept and totally meaningless. Long prison sentences, on the contrary, correspond perfectly to a collective desire to murder. We eliminate bothersome people, like any crook...

The articles in this section describe much of what is wrong with present agricultural and energy practices. They are intended to be read as critiques, and indeed they are, but not to be interpreted as endpoints in our thinking. We have tried, at New Alchemy, to shift our intellectual paradigm until these problems no longer loom as insuperable, but rather become a touchstone for biological approaches to agriculture and energy.

To free the nations and free the people of the land, we must begin by freeing ourselves. Our traditional spirituality is a liberating force. The Indian nations had no prisons before the Europeans came. We didn't have much of a crime problem, either. From this we know that the problem of crime is a product of the exploitative political economy. The very same people who have committed crimes in this society would not have done so if they'd been raised in a healthy non-exploitative society. We've...

Most people don't quite relate U.S. prisons to government-sponsored torture. We can thank the mainstream corporate media and politicians for this. Since the 1960's and 1970's, they've persistently projected the false image of U.S. prisons to the public as resorts where dangerous criminals eat chips, lift weights, and watch videos all day, much like the false images given of slavery as an experience that Black folks actually enjoyed. These false images are sustainable because the real world of...

Critical Race Theory starts by asking the same questions about race, racism and power that a myriad of academic disciplines and activists have pondered for the past century. It draws upon critical legal studies and radical feminism in the formation of its approach. While it is primarily concerned with the legal arena, it is activist in nature and has come to include political science, education, American and ethnic studies and more.

This manifesto is not a definitive or fixed blueprint, it is one Anarchist's personal view of how things are today and how they might be. If it results in just a few people stopping to think about different ways of doing things before they give passive and uncritical support to the status quo in the form of a vote, it will have served its purpose. The vision of such a free society has long been a source of hope. Anarchism also offers ways of improving the quality of life now, not in the distant...

About a decade after Holley Cantine gave up publishing his Retort, he wrote a science fiction/fantasy story that restated many of the personal and political themes he'd brought forward in the magazine. As he so often said in his political essays, liberation required far more than a mere change in economic conditions; it demanded a change in attitudes--ethics--that overshadowed economics completely. Any economic system whatsoever could remain oppressive so long as authoritarianism remained...

Black Africa has a centuries old anarchist tradition. After years of imperialist aggression, which led to the complete carving up of the continent at the hands of the white "master race", this tradition was temporarily harnessed. The ancient liberties of Africans under the rule of the "free world" were smashed, while the attempt was made to impose upon them white dictatorships in the Western tradition. But the spirit of rebellion is irrepressible, and frequently "the...

Because there have been so many lies and distortions of what Anarchism really stand for, by both its left-and right-wing ideological opponents, it will be necessary to discuss the many popular myths about it.

The anarchist project concerning the nation liberation struggle is very clear: it must not go towards constituting an 'intermediate stage' towards the social revolution through the formation of new national States.

The struggle must spread to establish economic, political and social structures in the liberated territories, based on...

It traces primitivism's basic precepts back to their authoritarian roots, reveals primitivist misconceptions about anarchism, capitalism and technology, shows how the corporate media have used primitivism to discredit anarchism, and also shows how ideology-driven primitivists, much like fundamentalist Christians oppose to evolution, have picked through anthropological evidence to support their...

An bilingual introduction to Anarchist Action. Anarchist Action is a forum through wich groups and individuals can act and organize. Each project is organized by an autonomous working group made up of individuals and collectives. We have come together to organize our own forms of resistance based upon anarchist principles. We are a public formation open to other like-minded individuals and groups.

The ideas presented in the following essay are not all-encompassing, but are intended as a starting point from which to move the principles of anarchism, and particularly anarchist-communism, out of the theoretical realm and into the reality today of the working-class struggle against the exploitative system of capitalism and the State that defends it. Much of what I've included herein is not original but needs to be expounded upon within a revolutionary anarchist perspective.
